Better late than never!

Beth from Not That You Asked has written a powerful essay about guilt, and loss, called “That Mom,” published in Literary Mama.  I’m mentioning it now in case like me, you missed it the first time. Congratulations, Beth!

  1. My grandmother lost her eight year old son to drowning one Mother’s Day. I don’t think I can ever forget the sorrow that would overcome her eyes when she spoke about Jimmy.

    Bravo to Beth and her courage. Near the end of her essay, I could feel her shoulders straighten, her posture gaining strength as she braved to move forward with her life. Her son would be so very proud.

  2. Thank you Jennifer. I hadn’t seen it. Beth is so amazing isn’t she? I really like she is in the same state as I am, even though she is so far away.

  3. Beth worked so hard on that and she was such a brave, honest writer. It’s the last thing I worked on at Literary Mama and it was an HONOR. I love that essay! And Beth just nailed it!
